Today’s “mix” includes lots of laughter as it focuses on our family vacation in the NC mountains. We knew we were in for a treat when my dad called ahead to tell us to be sure to “gun the gas” when we approach the driveway because of the steep grade. Boy, was he right! But it was worth the extra gas required. The view was truly spectacular, as you’ll see below.
I’ll let the pictures tell the story…
On Sunday morning, while Brian and Zach were biking the Bakery route, Sarah and I explored a nearby hiking trail. We took pictures because we didn’t think the guys would believe us.
One thing we didn’t lack during vacation was food. Have mercy. Dad whipped up homemade French toast (YUMMY!) and Zach and Sarah cooked an AMAZING Italian meal complete with Italian soda and classical music in the background.
At night, we played lots of “Set-Back”, a card game that our family has enjoyed since I can remember. We also enjoyed a game of Cranium. Seeing Brian act out such things as the word “bloom” never grows old. The cabin was full of laughter every night.
As Brian and I made our way down the long and steep driveway Wednesday morning, I thanked God for our family and our days in the mountains together. They will, no doubt, linger in my memory for years to come as one of our most special times together. More tomorrow.
